Last night our church family enjoyed the privilege of celebrating the faithful ministry of Jason and Tammy Williams. Thank you, Pastor Jason, for allowing us the opportunity to show you how much you are loved, and how much you will be missed.
As I was pondering all of the affirming things that could be said about Jason, this one rose to the top of my heap: Jason is a man of the Book!
Jason loves God’s Word. He desires to live by and to teach with precision God’s Word. He desires to lead his family according to God’s Word. And Jason counsels and ministers by the precepts of God’s Word. “Scripture alone” drives Jason’s heart and his passionate service for our Lord Jesus Christ.
Psalm 1:1-3 captures Jason well: “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.”
Thank you, Jason, that you did not want the glory to be yours. Even in your official farewell, you wanted all praise reserved for the King of kings and Lord of lords. Thank you.
Because you are a man of the Book, Jason, I know that First Baptist Paducah can look forward to many reports of many good things that Christ is doing in and through your life and ministry. I pray our Lord’s most precious and permeating blessings to be upon you, Tammy, Hannah, Joshua, Sarah Elizabeth, Abigail, Caleb, and Daniel. Always.
